CM's NEW Homeowner's Report
CM are pleased to offer our NEW Homeowner Report. The Environment Agency 2020 guidelines has meant Estate Agents, Conveyancers and Surveyors have had to become more aware of off-main's drainage legislation, and it has now become standard practise to check the efficiency and safety of sewage treatment plans and septic tanks, as part of any house sale.
As a result, CM has found demand high for a Homeowner's Report on existing drainage. With this, CM attends the site to offer a hand-drawn drawing of the existing drainage and report on the size, efficiency, safety, levels etc of the tank, and the discharge point. CM can then conclude if the treatment plant, septic tank and/or drainage field adheres to current legislation and requirements.
If all is well, the document can act as evidence in the conveyancing, to ensure a swift sale for all involved.
If our report concludes that the system does not reach standards, for whatever reason that may be, we can offer a solution. CM can create a quote to get the works fixed in advance of a sale OR as has happened before, the quote is used as a way to move the sale forward by deducting costs from the total sale.
Drainage can be a costly business, and in years gone by, CM have attended several sites where new buyers have been caught out with sewage treatment plants and septic tanks with (or without) drainage fields, that are not working efficiently and/or do not meet Environment Agency requirements. This report and updated legislation is intended to prevent this issue going forward.
If you are buying a property with a septic tank or treatment plant OR selling (even thinking of selling) then this report can help you. Please call CM Environmental on 0115 6848356 for more information.
